Yesterday’s answer:

a.                    Wrestle and exercise

April 1, 1846. Wednesday: . . . Mother [] was very sick and could not bear to ride. She walked all the way. I felt very unwell myself having much pain in my limbs. The roads were bad, but we arrived in camp about 2 o’clock and got on good ground. After getting our tents fixed fires made &c I went to wrestling, jumping &c to try to get well. I over-exerted myself without any symptoms of perspiration and was so sick after I had to go to bed.
